Author information

John C. Lincoln Elementary School Health Program, Phoenix, AZ 85020-2871, USA.


A community hospital, a school district, and a private pediatrician's office collaborated to ensure all children enrolled in five elementary schools had access to health care services. The school nurse at each school identified children needing health care services and obtained parental consent. The school nurse referred children to a nurse practitioner who visited one school each day. School nurses and space in the nurse's office were provided by the school district. The hospital provided a nurse practitioner as well as pharmacy, radiology, laboratory, and emergency department services. The pediatrician as medical director for the program provided vision, training, and community connections, and served as collaborating physician for the nurse practitioner.
